The legion of fans of Kit Harington will enjoy filling the time as they wait for that first episode of the 4th season of Game of Thrones.

If the film lacks energy up to this point, it more than makes up for it hereon in, saving this disaster film from being a complete and utter disaster.

The love story itself is forgettable and cheesy. But that is only incidental compared to what you can watch this movie for - its fight scenes and cataclysmic climax, both produced and recreated in good detail.

Sure, every character beat is hammy and predictable, but hey, not everything can be fine dining. Sometimes you just want a good cheeseburger and fries.

A rousing, crowd-pleasing noise-maker that delivers on what it promises.

It's entertainingly silly stuff with an 'oh, no - they wouldn't?' finale of the ooziest toasted cheese.

The lava is the only thing that flows in this misfiring affair.

Rubbish, then, but laughable rubbish - often more "with it" than "at it".
May 2, 2014
Absolute nonsense, highly entertaining (on certain camp levels) - and never boring.

It's all preposterously enjoyable, far more so than those impervious superheroes chucking each other about yet again.

Like an ancient Roman version of 2012, this disaster epic is a pure guilty pleasure, sparking plenty of laughter along with the massive effects-based carnage.

Undoubtedly watchable.

Thankfully, with its hokily enjoyable mix of sword-swinging heroics and CG pandemonium, Pompeii doesn't blow it.

Better than it had any right to be.

Instantly forgettable but more than passable as a diversion; solid B-movie cheese that's like Titanic-lite meets Gladiator-lite.

Much like Anderson's The Three Musketeers, the details are highly dubious, but the effect is strangely pleasing in its daft, anything-goes showmanship.

When we walk in to see a film called Pompeii what we want is a staggering recreation of the colossal destruction wrought by the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius...And, on that score, Pompeii delivers in spectacular spades.
March 20, 2014
A totally cheesy hybrid of sword-and-sandal adventure and disaster hokum.
March 18, 2014
...an almost prototypical guilty pleasure that fares better than most contemporary blockbusters...

Pompeii is a disaster movie and a disastrous movie, but the ending is pretty doggoned spectacular, making it worth catching on the big screen.
